that from george w. bush w who will not enter into the fray of this but understands what president obama is going through. he has been in that oval office. making these tough calls. there is only a few living americans who will understand how difficult these positidecis are. >> we are given the heads up of 1:15 eastern time for this statement. as often happens, with this white house, it is a bit delayed. we don't have a two-minute warning as of yet. we are back with our panel, chris wallace and ollie north. what do you expect him to say? is this more laying out the case? >> i think we will probably -- with a situation where he will announce he will continue to deliberate on this and will try to build some relationships. my guess is because the window is so narrow. you would have to do this tomorrow night. sunday might. because he is not going to do it before he briefs the rest of the members of congress. that's going to be tomorrow. he is going to leave monday night for sweden and then -- but -- that gives him essentially sunday night or monday night to make the attack. you probably don'
of then senator biden threatening to impeach then president george bush if he did not get congressional approval before going into iraq. this is becoming a cauldron of uncertainty. it is not good for the region -- >> president clinton lost some missiles in afghanistan. a lot has been written about how that in the end lead to 9/11. you never know about the unintended consequences here, do you? >> no, you don't. president clinton lobbed some missiles into southern iraq and at that point, a lot of people, a lot of our enemies took the notion that we were a paper tiger, that we were not willing to follow through with the actions and that we wanted to just do something. now is not the time to just do something. we ought to have a plan and now that the president has backed up , it is time to all come together and figure out what is it we really want to do that is in the national security interestses of the united states of america and then do it. >> i wanted to -- what greg just mentioned leads into my question. this is all coming down on the anniversary of 9/11. if the house votes what is the chance
sent former president george w. bush to the hospital last week for a heart operation from a guy who stays really fit. he bicycles. he exercises. and you might, too. but we want you to know the warning signs. what it means for all of us. "sunday housecall," coming up. >>> the latest on an american missionary in north korea now hospitaled. kenneth bae. north korea's supreme court claims he used his tourism business to form groups to overthrow their government. bae's sister said he's being treated for an enlarged heart now, chronic diabetes and back pain. they're still pleading for his release. >>> an exclusive fox news center interview. arizona senator john mccain weighing in on the president's plan to reform government surveillance programs. the president outlining his proposals on friday, calling for increased transparency and more. here is senator mccain's reaction. >> there's a careful balance here between preserving our assets and capabilities and making sure the american people are convinced that their privacy is not being violated. and it is a careful balance. right now, as i m
presidential campaign be like? brad bliekl blakely smiling on e right. you worked for president george w. bush. brad, how much does he have to win by in november to potentially send a national message? what do you think? >> if you look at the polls as you suggested, eric, he will win handily because he's delivered. don't forget. new jersey is a blue state. he's a republican governor in a democratic state. he has to face a democratically-controlled senate. look at what he's been able to do showing bi-partisanship, balanced budget, creating jobs, taking on the teachers union. his leadership before, during, and after superstorm sandy, so his leadership is his greatest strength. that's why you see his poll numbers so good even beyond his state, so i think he'll win handily unless something unforeseen happens in november. that sets him up to be certainly the frontrunner as we start talking even now about 20 60s d the presentation rate. >> eric: he's got a feud going on with rand paul and some in the republican party he's alienated. >> the republican party isn't homogeneous. we have a lot of differ
. >> a former white house political director under president george w. bush, and maxwell, a democratic strategist and contributor for ebony.com, thank you both for joining us. >> thank you, heather. >> just to summaryize, the idea is to freeze the current undocumented -- in place, give them work permits and perhaps for a better deal under the next president. the move would not be without precedent for this administration. stopped the deportation of hundreds of thousands of undocumented youth through its deferred action program. politically some argue that all president obama needs to implement plan b is proof congress can't get the job done. matt, is this a possibility? and what is the fallout? >> you know, heather, i guess obama would never surprise me by doing something like this with so many other things he's done. he believes in raw president shshl power. i think it would be a massive mistake. i think democratic leadership would be very upset about this. it would be in essence taking this issue out of the hands of the elected officials in congress whose job it is to adjudicate on t
way. >> eric: brad blakeman is former assistant to george w. bush, and former chief of staff. welcome to you both. what will republicans do? >> republicans should play chess and not russia roulette. the strategy is to distort, divide, and distract us, the 3d strategy. we shouldn't fall into that trap. the fox news poll suggests that the american people don't like obamacare overwhelmingly, and they believe that it' it's in or best interest to repeal or replace it, so the job for republicans is to dismantle as much as we can. the president has done great job of it already. he's now eliminated the business obligation for obamacare to kick in, and the individual contribution. so the president is doing a nice job. unions are lining up against it. let's not shoot ourselves in the foot. let's have in the spring and summer of next year as we gear up to 2014 a plan in place where we solve obama care, but we also tackle the economy, and not fall for the democrats wanting us to shut down the government. we should keep our eye on the prize, and that's 2014. >> eric: chris, do you think that obama
george w. bush says president obama has to decide now what his objectives are with syria, its government, and its stockpile of chemical weapons. >> the president said, himself, almost exactly a year ago, that the use of chemical weapons would cross a red line, and when a president of the united states makes a statement like that, he needs to be prepared to do something pretty dramatic if the red line is crossed. otherwise, his credibility is gravely damaged. i think that's where we are at the moment. >> reporter: the united nations disarmament chief arrived in syria today to press the syrian government to allow the u.n. investigative scene to go to the site of the reported chemical attack. greg? >> thank you. >>> celebrating the dream, then and now, thousands of americans descending on the national mall in washington marking 50 years since the historic civil rights march on washington and reverend dr. martin luther king's speech for the ages. we'll go live to the monument for more. doug? >> reporter: good morning. you're just looking at another wave of the march beginning to approach the
to go? let's debate this. mercedes, former spokesperson for george w. bush and david mercer, finance director for the dnc. thank you both for joining us. >> thank you, heather. >> pleasure to be here. >> senator cruz would need 41 senators or 218 representatives to get behind his legislation. so, mercedes, i'll begin with you. what do you think about his tactics? >> well, you know, i think senator cruz's heart is in the right place, however i think his tactic quite frankly won't work politically. we know that there's a public support out there to basically oppose or disapprove of obama care. i think that in essence of trying to shut down the government when you're not including obama -- or funding obama care, i think that's when you have a big problem because there's not that public support for shutting down the government. at the end i think the house leadership's approach where, you know, basically they're talking about different options, but the fact that they're causing the slow death of obama care is i think a much more effective tactic than going forth with how senator cruz is
. by the way, elliott has jumped with former president george w. bush. he likes to do the jumps on his birthday. >>> are you one of the folks who cannot unplug even while on vacation? if you need a social media fix, perhaps your next trip should be to the world's first twitter-themed hotel. check it out. guests can book a twitter party suite where they can have a virtual concierge. you can send a message to a friend sitting at at pool side bed. let us know if you go there. >>> we love to hear from you, speaking of twitter. the president is in martha's vineyard and congressmen and women have headed home for the recess. but should they work while out on break? should their time talking to you? we've been asking, do you think members of congress should be required to hold town hall meetings during august recess? we ask you to tweet that. one viewer writes back, yes, they should. how else will you know what the people want? plus, they don't need vacations. thanks. john adds absolutely. this might be the only way to get any kind of real answers. and jack says, yes, all members should. you at home ar
asked former team owner and then president george w. bush if he believes that what he was seeing on the feel was real. his response was that he wasn't sure. but he hopes so and he wanted to give those playing the benefit of the doubt. today it's clear that they no longer deserve any benefit of any doubt. those who have engaged in this dishonesty now unfairly indict a whole group of people for trying to do it right. it takes hundreds of players who are innocent and lump them together with the few who are guilty or could be guilty. but there is even a bigger question for the tens of millions of americans who follow baseball. if the game is no longer a cynic, why care about the results? the mantra in many lockers rooms across the nation, and i personally heard it, is if you're not cheating, you're not trying. the win at all cost attitude is per vasesive. it dominates the landscape. this is not just about sports. with careers on the lines, so much money to be made, so much glory to be achieved, so much fame to be had, those who initially sought to do it right end up doing it wrong. s
for george w. bush. well to you both, ladies. >> thank you. >> the president said himself he was outraged by this potential conduct targeting conservative groups and other political groups. he said he would not tolerate it if the investigation reads lehr what about the personal emails? >> what's ironic is that they want to invade her personal email in order to show that the tea party groups' privacy was invaded. i think at a certain point you have to say we have done everything we can do. we have looked at all the professional emails. we vice president found what we are looking for. we haven't found anything truly linking lerner to some type of scandal. we have got to let it go. at what point is darrell issa going to stop this fishing expedition. just because is he not finding what he wants, doesn't mean he gets to keep going. i think what we have all learned in this scandal is yes. the irs probably overstepped its bounds in looking into these groups. frankly they looked into just as many liberal groups. >> that's not true. >> that's not true. >> including one i worked for. >> shannon: le
